Davidson robotics team wins 6th place in South's BEST
Davidson High School has placed sixth overall in the South’s BEST Robotics competition.
A team of 42 students from Davidson competed against teams from 56 other schools in the competition, held at Auburn University over the weekend. To make it to this competition, teams had to qualify at local competition.
Baker High placed 27th.
“The 42 members of Davidson’s robotics teams worked hundreds of hours on a task that many adults could not accomplish,” said Davidson teacher Mike Fletcher. “Their attention to detail and determination showed that they are prepared to take on any challenge.” Read more here.
